WABASH VALLEY (WTHI-TV )– You might see much more Duke Energy crews cutting down trees throughout the Wabash Valley recently. This is done due to the fact that they are proactive. Winter tornados can conveniently fall limbs, which can drop on high-voltage line and trigger power outages. Their emphasis is on getting rid of the branches as well as even trees that are near power posts. We talked to Rick Burger, Duke Energy’s area manager, and also he states it’s in fact regular to see crews outside all year round.
“It’s just not winter months or anything. It’s throughout the year. We’re available eliminating trees or cutting trees to maintain the power going in our communities.”
They will certainly alert Duke Energy consumers when they are on your property. Hamburger says they will take care of the debris in your yard, but a few of the timber will be left on the home.
